Monday, 24 April 2017, 10am–5pm
Workshop Leads: Martin Poulter, Owen Stephens
Focused on getting creative with and remediating Jisc’s UK Medical Heritage Library and JISC Historical Texts (EEBO, ECCO, British Library 19th Century) and the use of Wikimedia/Wikipedia platforms for working with content drawn from digital archives, paired sessions will give participants opportunities to experiment and work with either:
- Strand 1: Jisc UK Medical Heritage Library (am) and Wikimedia tools (pm)
- Strand 2: Wikimedia tools (am) and Jisc Historical Texts (pm).
No prior experience is necessary as the hackday is designed as an introduction with experts from Jisc on hand to offer advice, training and support. The session is open to academic staff, postgraduate students and colleagues from GW4 institutions and partners. There is no need to have attended the December workshop to attend the hackday.
Registration is free but places are limited to 20 per strand, so early booking is advised. Please register by visiting https://gw4-archives-hackday.eventbrite.co.uk/.
